Books can be borrowed from the shelves using our self-service machines. If all copies of a book that you want are out on loan you can reserve a copy by placing a hold. See the step by step guide and 'how-to' video at the bottom of the page
You can borrow books for 1 week or 3 weeks
- 1 week loans have 'Week Loan' labels on the spine.
- Print journals and books marked 'Reference only' cannot be borrowed.
Your loans will be automatically renewed until the expiry of your library membership (this needs to be renewed yearly)
- To manage your account, view your loans and check your fines, sign in to Hunter using the Sign In option in the top right-hand corner.
- NHS staff can obtain their library account login by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Renewing is not always successful, these are the main reasons why:
- An item will not be renewed if another person has reserved it
- You cannot renew any items if you have outstanding fines of £10 or more
Remember! If items are lost, damaged or returned late you will have to pay a fine or charge:
- Overdue fines (per day): 20p per day on recalled items.
- An invoice for the cost of replacement will be issued for non-returned, lost or damaged items.
